Why is more collegial sharing important to help improve education - especially now?
Technology can help faculty improve student engagement in courses - without adding unrealistic workloads for themselves or their students.
There is an overabundance of low-threshold resources that are easily accessible, low-cost, and non-intimidating, that faculty members can use to improve courses quickly and effectively.
Collegial sharing of such improvements is already common among some colleagues, even though it is not well-supported or well-organized. In fact, most of
these valuable resources are not known or used by more than five to
ten percent of all faculty members.
- Higher education good at selecting, collecting, organizing, making accessible
- Higher education bad at engaging

More intentional, supported collegial sharing could accelerate and sustain more cumulative, widespread, and significant improvement in education.
